Crowdsourcing Government: Why Access Matters
    Sunday March 11, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ AT&T Conference Hotel (Salon C) (1900 University Ave, Austin, TX 78705)
    A public right to data is key to unlocking the biggest enterprise opportunity of our time: integrating social media with public services. Open government combines transparency with citizen participation. This is the future of government. The Open Government Partnership is a new international initiative - bringing together more than 50 countries and international civil society - to share best practice in beating corruption, improving social justice and driving growth and innovation. The UK has put Transparency at the heart of its vision of social and economic growth and is one of the founder members of the OGP. This session also hears from other key founders of the OGP from around the world – including Samantha Power, special assistant to President Barack Obama and the architect of the initiative and Rakesh Rajani, a global civil society leader. The Future is Open: find out how to become an Open Government pioneer.
